Fish caught with toy fishing pole

RALEIGH, N.C. – The following is a press release from the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission:

That’s David Hayes’ story and he’s sticking with it. The Wilkes County angler used his granddaughter’s Barbie Doll rod-and-reel combo — all 2 ½ feet of it — to reel in a new state record channel catfish that measured 2 inches longer than the fishing pole.

That's a nice story. I wonder how what pound test the line is on a Barbie fishing rod?

I'm calling BS.

We have Cats much larger than that in Minny. However we fish for them in a moving current.

Nah, I'm still calling BS.

I thought it sounded small, too, but it's a channel cat, not a blue cat, and records are skewed based on the tackle used to catch them. There could be a record 70 pounder caught on 20 pound test, but catching a 22 pounder on 6 pound test might be a record, too. It's all catfishagorical.

The stories everywhere which would cause me to initially believe it to be true. It was on MSN and Yahoo's front page.

No video footage and the word of a Parent and his little granddaughter is not good enough for me. I've fished cats and their is no way this would work with that pole in a moving current. Who puts heavy test line on a Barbie poll? I'd think you would put 4 pound test max on that pole.

Yep, still calling BS.

Hayes landed the record-breaking fish, which weighed 21 pounds, 1 ounce, on Aug. 5 from a private pond in Wilkes County while fishing with his granddaughter Alyssa, 3.


no current. not disagreeing with you, just sayin. Maybe they have bigfoot fever, who knows.

Yahoo has gotten stories wrong before ie. Cheney and his hot fishing rod.

I think it could be done but it would definately be tough without being able to set the drag and tire the fish.

moon I saw your Oklahoma noodling buddies on Dirty Jobs. Those boys are crazy. I'd rather fish and keep all my fingers. 8-o


As for this being a pond fish, I can believe it's an old fish that got big and fat in that pond and had next to no fight left in it. You'd think one thrash of that tail would snap that line, but maybe that thing was on its last legs and they got it at just the right time.

I'm with you on the fake news stories, though. There have been a lot of them lately, and this one could be another bogus one.
